In a rematch of last year's Western Conference quarterfinal series, the Anaheim Ducks host the Nashville Predators on Wednesday night. The Predators won that series, four games to two, with two of their wins coming on the road.
The Ducks are coming off a seven-game road trip that yielded just one win and five total points, dropping them to 5th place in the Pacific Division. One of their games on the recent road trip came in Nashville on October 29, with the Predators scoring a 3-0 win as right wing Patric Hornqvist beat Jonas Hiller 14 seconds into the game. Hornqvist has a team-high seven goals and is third player in franchise history to score goals in six consecutive games.
For the offensively-challenged Ducks, who have just scored just once in their last two games and rank dead last in the league with a 1.86 goals per game average, 41-year-old Teemu Selanne is pacing the team with 14 points. Corey Perry, last year's Hart Trophy winner, has just nine points through 14 games this season.
